Junior G as well as the others stood in front of the Turmaculus.
He was planning to go inside the Turmaculus to get a potion for Chakeebo.
"Good luck. Tasuara will wait here invisible
for you to come out. It's not safe for us to be outside. We'll be inside with
Chakeebo," said Deracko.
"You'd better get the potion. The sooner we
get out of here, the better," said Methalius.
"Why can't Tasuara become invisible so she can
just go through the Turmaculus and get the potion?" asked Junior G.
"She'd have to be physical to grab the bottle.
If she turned off her ring to grab the bottle and her tail was sticking out
then... that'd be bad," said Bortyk.
"We don't have much time!" exclaimed Yoigo as
he lifted the Turmaculus' mouth open. Junior G gulped and crawled in. The mouth
shut behind him. This was great. There was barely any air and it reeked! Junior
G crawled down the throat and stumbled on some kind of skull...probably from
some Petpet that got eaten. Feathers from Airaxes and Whoots... a piece of metal
that looked like it was from a Diddler... even a Christmas coat!
"That must have been from a Christmas Meepit,"
muttered Junior G. For a strange reason there was light to see. He crawled down
the Turmaculus' throat and finally came into its gigantic stomach.
"This reeks!" cried Junior G as he plugged his
nose. He saw that the light was coming from a Flightning Bug that hadn't been
digested yet. It was flapping around creating static electricity. Junior G suddenly
felt a burning sensation.
"AHHH! THE ACID!" he yelled. The acid inside
of the Turmaculus was burning him! He had to shut his eyes so they didn't get
burned. He stumbled around and felt something that felt like a glass bottle,
but it turned out to be an offline Pinceron. Then he felt something smash under
"Oh no! I broke a bottle!" cried Junior G. He
jumped up and landed on another bottle! "This is bad! There's only one more!"
He felt around and felt something glass. It was a bottle! He picked it up and
crawled out. He was careful not to break it. He opened the Turmaculus' mouth
and crawled out.
"You've got it!" cried Tasuara. Junior G nodded.
He shook of some acid and stumbled around. He was lucky the acid inside wasn't
very strong, or else he'd be in a lot more pain.
"Come on let's get inside of the castle," said
"So you really do want to save Chakeebo!" said
"Sure, but the thing I really want is a shower."
Kyohara looked at where she was. She was in a tent and was looking up at a
Shoyru in armour.
"What happened?" she asked. She stood up and
shook her head hard.
"Just sit back down. If it wasn't for me, you'd
probably be dead," said the Shoyru. "My name is Kolicto. I've lived here in
the Lost Desert for a long time," he said.
"I have a problem. I was traveling with a group
and we went to sleep. I got lost from them and stumbled into the Lost Desert,"
"So I presume you want me to take you to them?"
he guessed. Kyohara nodded. "Where was your group?"
"At the northern border of the Haunted Woods,"
"Fine, we will go. Not now, you must rest. I
think tomorrow would be fine. We'll travel by Krawkadon," he said.
"Isn't traveling by Krawkadon a little... slow?"
"Maybe, but I trust my Krawkadons. They can
steer us clear from the gas and their smart. They know they way to the Haunted
Woods. Their courage will get them through the Haunted Woods and when they need
to, they can run. I have complete faith in Mojo and Jojo." Kyohara nearly burst
out laughing at the Krawkadon' names, but managed to ask one more question.
"But what if we come into danger?"
"I've yet to face a foe I cannot defeat," Kolicto
Tasuara flew up the stone staircase followed by Junior G. Frightening noises
were heard coming from the room above. The kept on going and were astonished
at what they saw. Chakeebo was attacking everyone! Zeedil and Yoigo were keeping
him at bay but Methalius and Bortyk were nursing wounds Chakeebo had given them.
Poison was flowing through their bodies. Deracko and Millyum were hiding in
the corner with the two Ixi. Poison was flowing through their bodies.
"Hurry up! Get Chakeebo to drink the potion!"
cried Yoigo as he shot a wave of energy at Chakeebo with his Gelert Wand. Junior
G ran up and stood in front of Chakeebo. Chakeebo opened his mouth and made
a hissing sound. Junior G uncorked the bottle and threw some potion into Chakeebo's
mouth. Chakeebo choked and made funny noises and fell on the ground. Junior
G ran over to Methalius and Bortyk and gave some potion to them.
Wha...What happened?" asked Chakeebo as he stood
up. His body had turned back to yellow instantly. Methalius and Bortyk also
stood up. They were all cured.
"There is still a bit of potion left! We can
duplicate in case anybody else gets attacked!" cried the brown Ixi.
"Seriously! What happened? My last memory was
being in Meridell," said Chakeebo. Yoigo handed Chakeebo's ring back over to
"That reminds me! Why couldn't Yoigo just use
his ring on Chakeebo right after he got bit? He'd be returned to his regular
self!" said Tasuara. Everyone looked at each other and laughed.
"Oops," said Yoigo. Chakeebo looked around and
noticed someone was missing.
"Where's Kyohara?" asked Chakeebo. Everyone
looked around again.
"We forgot about her!" said Methalius.
"She was in the Haunted Woods when we went to
sleep. When we woke up, she was gone," said Bortyk.
"We'd better get out of here and find her! She
could have ran into trouble!" exclaimed Millyum.
"Not today! It's too late. Spend the night in
the castle with us, and I'll escort you back to the Haunted Woods by boat,"
said Zeedil. Everyone nodded. They had flown around while grabbing onto a ring,
they had battled Chakeebo, Chakeebo himself had been bitten and Junior G had
gone inside of the belly of the Turmaculus. It had been a very long and very
Kyohara was lying in bed inside of Kolicto's tent. Kolicto was standing on
guard outside. Several times Kyohara had heard some sounds and some movement
but they died down. Black Hopos and black Mortogs were constantly attacking
him. Kyohara shut her eyes and tried to get to sleep. She was miles away from
everyone else and a complete stranger from evil Petpets was protecting her.
Not the best place to sleep, but she didn't have many other options.
